Was the final entry in the R3 thread not posted after the first match started?

Asking for a friend.

I think it may have been posted posted during the second leg but allowable.
Christmas spirit and all that

Good decision Fling. Given that Norris was flying at the time of the post, and the entrant went for a Joyce win, there was no advantage to the slightly late post.

Thanks for that fling. I didn't even know I was late. Hopped out of bed and straight to the entry thread as I realized I had not entered (up late last night celebrating my Dad's 86th birthday!). Thought it started at 8am EST and since thread wasn't locked thought I was on time. Didn't realize the matches had already started!

Why are the latest round of matches worth more points than the previous rounds?

Erm because it's a round further on in the competition and the format has increased?

Just a guess, mind.

Fair enough to increase the points for a correct score as the number of combinations have increased but picking a player to win is still picking a player to win, not sure why that should be worth more points than before.

This is the first time anyone has queried it, every single competition i have run on here where the format has increased has also seen an increase in the point tariff, and I think everyone else has done it the same way.

Think you are moaning for the sake of it tbh.
You could have chosen not to enter as all the points were posted right at the start of this thread...

As the competition progresses players should be more evenly matched and therefore it should be harder to pick a winner. Going forward feel free to suggest what you think the points should be.

Or he could do one of 2 things.

1. Run the next comp using his rules.
2. fek off.
Thinking of one.

The comp rules and scoring are all clear to see in the opening post.

Here is the table after yesterday's games.
Wubbalubbadubdub and Nobilo are the highest scorers over the 2 days of round 3 with points of 65.

The top 3 have a good gap to those below them but there are still plenty of points to play for so all could change.

Have a Merry Xmas everyone.

Merry Xmas everyone.

I will put the 4th round thread up after the completion of round 3 on Thursday 27th and the fixtures between G Anderson v C Dobey and MVG v A Lewis will be excluded from round 4 predictions.
